Add a Guest User to a Team

As a Team owner, you can invite guests users to your Team. This allows external users to collaborate on projects as long as they have a valid email address of any kind.

To invite a guest user, select More options (ellipsis next to Team name) > Add members, and enter the guest's email address.

 

Notes: 

  • Guests need a valid email address.

  • If you receive a "We didn't find any matches" error while trying to add a guest, your organization doesn't allow guests. Contact your IT admin to Enable guest access for Teams

 

The guest user will receive an email to create their account or login to their Office 365 account if the email address is associated with one.

 Guests can participate in channels, conversations, chats, and meetings; they can share files in channels, add new channels, and more
